Moving to Portland for Work?
Many people move to Portland for companies like Intel, Nike, Addidas, and many others. Portland has a large amount of technology companies. If you’re moving to Portland for Nike then you’ll most likely want to live in the Beaverton area. Beaverton, Oregon is a suburb just west of Portland. Many homes are just minutes from Portland’s city center.
If you’re moving to Portland for Intel, then you’ll want to be in outer Beaverton or Hillsboro. There are some other cities in the area you might consider but Portland is known for it’s traffic and by living in Beaverton or Hillsboro you can cut down on your commute time. Hillsboro, which houses Intel’s headquarters, is a great city with lovely neighborhoods. You’re just 45 minutes from the ocean which makes for great weekend getaways.

Moving to Portland for Retirement?
Portland is a popular destination for retirement. Many people move to Portland because of the green trees, the proximity to the coast and skiing, as well as the great food scene and wine industry. Portland is currently a great destination for Californians to retire because they can sell their house and move to Portland and pay cash for a new home while keeping much of what they sold their home for.
Portland is a great place to stay active. Hiking is a favorite past time of Portlanders. With great access to Washington park in the heart of downtown, there are miles of hiking trails throughout the park with so much tagged foliage and wild life to see. Also, just 45 minutes east of Portland is the famous Columbia River Gorge. The Gorge is a wonderful place to hike in the mountains, swim, boat, or play in the Columbia river.
